Visit the coast in Northern England for a great day out


Druridge Bay

The nice thing about The UK being an island – actually several islands! –  is that nowhere is very far from the sea and we have some great beaches to visit.

Our friend Ruth has told us about some great places they go to with their family in the North East:-

There are about 100 miles of beautiful sandy coast-line in the NE, nice for paddling or exploring rock pools. There are also lots of walks along the coastal paths, most buggy accessible.

Some of Ruth’s favourites places are:

* Seahouses for older children and adults, with little fishing boats taking you to the Farne Islands, with an amazing collection of seals and nesting seabirds (not really suitable for buggies and young children).

* Druridge Bay – with lovely walks along beach and around the lake. The Visitor Centre has displays and information about the local area, and a café and shop which is open at weekends and during school holidays.

The metro serves these 3 places at the coast to the east of Newcastle Upon Tyne in North Tyneside.
All have restaurants, cafes and of course chippies for traditional fish and chips

Tynemouth / Longsands
Walk, play and picnic on the beautiful golden sands, build a sandcastle and even take a paddle if the weather is warm.There are lots of cafes & chippies in Tynemouth village.


The Blue Reef Aquarium is on the seafront. at Tynemouth (admission charge)

Cullercoats and Whitley Bay. – small towns with small beaches where you can walk along the sea front.
Both are buggy friendly.
